The Board of Municipal Utilities authorized an extension and expansion of the Foundation Drain Sump Pump Disconnection (FDSD) program. Through December 31, 2013, the Board authorized $36,000 for 120 residents / properties located in the formerly-combined sewer areas of Avon Lake, who have sump pumps that pump foundation drain water to the sanitary sewer. Each resident / property owner will receive either a $300 sewer credit or a $100 sewer credit and a basin pump for permanently preventing their foundation drain water from entering the sanitary sewer. Visit the Avon Lake Municipal Utilities' website (www.avonlakewater.org) for more information and/or call us at 440.933.6226 to see if you qualify. All who take part in the program will be required to complete an acknowledgement.
